Publishers Note

Dear Reader!

Usually the month of September is all about preparations for IMEX America and we do so this year as well. But at the same time, we’re stunned by the damage to our planet and its people that nature is causing recently. My heartfelt sympathy is out with all of those being directly or indirectly touched by the many natural catastrophes we’re seeing at the moment – the devastation caused by category 4 hurricane Harvey in Texas; hurricane Irma having literally destroyed some Caribbean Islands, the north shore of Cuba where it hit as a category 5 hurricane and now devastating Florida; and now hurricane Maria – as I am writing this made landfall on the island Dominica as a category 5 hurricane leaving devastation and is now threatening to hit the next islands on its course - a second extremely strong hit to some islands already devastated by Irma; not to forget the terrifying earthquake in Mexico with a magnitude of more than 8 – but also the horrible situation the extremely heavy monsoon season in south-east Asia has brought into this region where the massive flooding’s are much worse than those caused by Harvey and Irma.

While it is difficult to identify the impact of man-made climate change, global warming/climate change will bring more catastrophes, such as hurricanes Harvey and Irma, simply because the Atlantic waters are heating up during the hottest season in the region – and just 1 or 1.5 degrees of higher water temperature makes a huge difference in hurricane strength.

Isn’t it time to think of what we - in the sense of every single one of us – might do to help stop or at least slow down this effect? Certainly, once we think carefully about it – we’ll find some of the small things we can do to be more environmentally conscious – and most of the little changes don’t even reduce our own personal quality of life.

We’ll catch up on the impacts to our industry in the different regions touched by these catastrophes and keep you updated when information becomes available. Should you possess latest information – please share it with us!

Meanwhile, we’re bringing several hosted buyer events to your notice – you are most welcome to apply for these programmes. These include:

World MICE Day in Qingdao, China, October 25 to 27

MITM Americas & Cultourfair in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, November 14 to 17

MICE West Africa in Accra, Ghana, November 23 to 25

Due to technical problems, the event website on www.micewestafrica.com is currently unavailable. The show organizer confirmed that this issue will be fixed shortly. Hosted Buyer Application is open.

Czech Republic: Prague Congress Center presents the new exhibition hall and Pankrác Square

The International Architectural and Urban Competition of the New PCC has its winner and the public knows the winning design for the completion of a new exhibition hall for the Prague Congress Center and its surrounding area.

"For a long time, the Congress Centre has been unable to meet high demands for exhibition and congress areas, and therefore it needs a new hall. However, it is also important to address the entire area around the Prague Congress Centre so that it can serve more efficiently to people. We received a lot of designs and I am glad that a lot of them were of high quality and I believe that we eventually really picked the best one." says Prague Mayor Adriana Krnáčová.

The first prize was awarded to the design of a young OCA studio from Barcelona run by Marc Subirana, Hernan Lleida Ruiz, Biela Susanna and Bernard Garcia. The second prize was received by Francisco Jorquera's team from Palma de Mallorca.

An eleven-member jury, with its chairman, architect Petr Hlaváček, chose from the received anonymous designs of 76 teams from 23 countries in the two-round, open and worldwide competition. This represented the work of at least four hundred architects, planners, engineers and other professionals. All designs will be exhibited in the Prague Congress Center from 13th to 19th September and 23th September to 5th October 2017, South foyer, entrance 10, daily from 12-7 p.m.

The jury consisted of representatives of PCC and international architectural professionals. Petr Hlaváček summarized their collective work: "… In spite of the great diversity of the approaches of individual jurors, we largely acted in concord. I suppose that when a jury agreed on one design, it has the potential to captivate the public and other participants in the process."

Elia Zenghelis, co-founder of the famous OMA office and currently a professor at Yale School of Architecture, said about the winning team after the competition: "The original building of the Prague Congress Centers has to deal with the identity of a very impressive monument of the Communist era, which must be re-formulated. This includes a new look, a position within the city and a connection to a complex traffic situation. This complexity has been mastered by the authors of the winning design."

From the 76 proposals mentioned above, the jury selected the best six in March. These further elaborated their designs for the second round. In addition to receiving the financial reward, the creators of the awarded designs will be invited to further negotiation procedures without a publication in which the contract assignment will be decided. The four other reams will receive a sketch fee for participating in the second round.

USA, - Hurricane IRMA – aftermath

Florida Keys Temporarily Closed to Visitors as Infrastructure Evaluation and Repairs Are Underway

In the wake of Hurricane Irma’s impact on the Florida Keys, infrastructure repairs and restoration efforts are underway, according to Keys officials.

While residents and business owners were permitted back into the Upper Keys on Tuesday, visitors have been asked to postpone any near-term plans to vacation in the island chain.

Some areas of the Keys are likely to be ready to accommodate visitors before others. An exact reopening date for all regions is not yet known, but Key West city officials expect their island will open by Fantasy Fest, the annual costume and masking festival that is set to start Friday, Oct. 20.

Both Keys airports’ runways are available for aircraft, but commercial service to Key West International Airport has been suspended until electricity and water have been restored. Charter and general aviation at Florida Keys Marathon International Airport are suspended until further notice. The airports are being used as incoming staging areas for relief supplies and personnel.

Travelers who had near-term reservations should contact their airlines and hotels to change plans.

Some regions of the Keys were impacted more than others and damage at Keys accommodations’ facilities varies from no impacts, except for landscaping, to severe damage because of storm surge. Assessments are still being executed, but it is believed that most tourism facilities will return to operations soon after the restoration of power, water and communications.

The Florida Department of Transportation has inspected all spans on the Florida Keys Overseas Highway and deemed them safe. A few locations of the highway are being repaired due to storm surge and those repairs should be completed quickly.

The Upper Florida Keys between Key Largo and mile marker 74 are currently under a 10 p.m. to dawn curfew. Remaining areas of the Keys continue to observe a dusk-to-dawn curfew.

As more details become available, they are to be posted on fla-keys.com as well as monroecountyem.com and the Monroe County Website at monroecounty-fl.gov.

A dedicated informational website has been established at KeysRecovery.org

Greater Fort Lauderdale’s Tourism Industry Rebounds After Hurricane Irma

The Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau is pleased to advise the destination is no longer under any weather watches, warnings or advisories following Hurricane Irma. The Florida east coast destination fared well as the storm moved away from the area in a more southwesterly direction on Sunday, September 10, and winds began to lessen. Weather conditions are currently good and cleanup efforts are underway, with some businesses and residents still without power.

Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Port Everglades resumed operations after a 2 day closure. Four cruise ships that were delayed due to the storm are scheduled to return to Port Everglades this week. The Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center is fully operational.

Many of Greater Fort Lauderdale’s hotels remained open during the storm providing shelter and accommodations to visitors and residents. Hotels along the area’s coast line have reported no damage and are in the process of reopening by the end of this weekend as power is restored, per Florida Power & Light.

“We are blessed for sure,” said Stacy Ritter, President/CEO of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau. “The storm was bigger than ever imagined and very concerning for our visitors and 1.9 million residents. Broward County was well prepared with emergency services, and cleanup activities are taking place throughout the area. The high-code standards of our many new buildings showed that good construction pays off. We expect to be back to normal operations and welcoming vacationers and scheduled meetings and conference attendees shortly.”

IMEX America announces dates and venues up to 2025, confirming move to September in 2019 and 2020

The IMEX Group – organizers of IMEX America – have announced the dates and locations for their industry leading Las Vegas show through 2025.

Ray Bloom, Chairman of the IMEX Group said, “We know that our industry partners from across North America and around the world plan numerous activities and co-located events around IMEX America. In addition, the fall is a very busy period for the industry. As a result, we felt that it was important to give the industry as much notice as possible with regards to our dates and venues going forward to assist with their own planning.

“In particular, we wanted to remind the industry that we will be moving from our usual October dates to September for two (2) years in 2019 and 2020.”

In addition to confirming the dates, the IMEX Group has also announced that from 2021, after ten successful years at the Sands Expo & Convention Center, IMEX America will move to the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.

Ray went on to explain, “The Sands Expo team have been wonderfully supportive partners since well before our inaugural show in 2011 and we are looking forward to four more successful shows working with them, through 2020. Their contribution in helping us to establish IMEX America in Las Vegas as the event where everyone from our industry, from the USA and worldwide, gathers each fall has been invaluable. We are incredibly grateful for their partnership and are looking forward to continuing that partnership for many years into the future.

“However, we were not able to lock in space from 2021 onward. Therefore, after celebrating ten years working together and enjoying a fantastic relationship with the Las Vegas Sands team, we shall be moving to Mandalay Bay. We look forward to establishing successful partnerships with the Mandalay Bay and MGM Resorts International teams and we know that their world-class facilities will be an equally fitting home for the show.”

Long standing IMEX partner, the Sands Expo, commented, “As the leader of the meetings and tradeshow industry, we always felt that Las Vegas Sands was the perfect partner to assist in the launch of IMEX,” said Chandra Allison, senior vice president of sales for The Venetian, The Palazzo and Sands Expo. “It has been a pleasure helping IMEX grow to become one of the most successful annual events for meeting professionals. The show has evolved, and so has the industry. We recognize this is the right time for the show to move to its next destination. We look forward to continuing our partnership and support of IMEX America in Las Vegas for many years to come.”

Talking about their excitement in hosting the show in the future, MGM Resorts International and Mandalay Bay commented, “We are honored to partner with IMEX America and to keep such a prestigious industry event in Las Vegas. As an active supporter of IMEX, MGM Resorts International is excited to create new experiences for attendees at Mandalay Bay. We will continue to showcase the city of Las Vegas and MGM Resorts International as the leading meeting and events destination” said Stephanie Glanzer, CMP, Vice President Sales of Mandalay Bay.
